    I have a 2011 white double cab sr5 prerunner. A buddy of mine is going to sell me used 18x9 rims off of his FJ. Will this fit on my truck without getting it lifted? His FJ is not lifted so i would assume it would work, but i wanted to know before i buy them. thanks for any info

    What size tires do you want to run?

    What is the offset or backspacing of the rims?

    So 285/65/18? You can't fit that on stock suspension on a Tacoma.

    4.5" backspacing is good for 285s and between 4.5 and 5.5" is good for 265s

    alright im looking for an off road look without lifting my. would it be better to just get a 17 inch rim and bigger tire or whats your opinion. i want to get either black fuel rims or black rockstars i dont really care about size of rim and tire i just need to know what would work because im flexible

    Rim size is up to you. On stock suspension, you can fit the following sizes if you get a wheel with 4.5-5.5" backspacing

    265/75/16
    265/70/17
    265/65/18

    I'm looking at the Fuel "Pump" D515 for my stock height Taco. Will a 265/65/18 tire stick out past the wheel wells on the 18x9 wheel with 5in backspacing?

    They will stick out approx 2.5" more than your current wheels do.
